Release Date for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator
The storied history of the Lincoln Navigator is getting a new chapter. When the release date for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator arrives, O.C. Welch Ford Lincoln customers can take home a newly redesigned, more refined, more powerful and more technologically advanced version of the full-size luxury SUV. In addition to changing the way the vehicle looks, Lincoln engineers have also improved the handling profile of the 2018 Navigator, making it easier to handle on the road, off the road or on deteriorating road conditions. The automaker hasn’t made a timetable available for when the new SUV will be delivered to dealerships, but late summer or fall is when it usually happens.
“Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling,” Kumar Galhotra, president, The Lincoln Motor Company said in a press release. “The all-new Navigator embodies both. The sleek styling, spacious interior and technology are all designed to make each trip effortless.”
Changes to 2018 Navigator capability
As a full-size SUV, it takes a fair amount of power to get the 2018 Lincoln Navigator moving. Performance should never be a problem for the new luxury SUV with its twin-turbocharged, V-6 mated to the automaker’s new 10-speed automatic transmission. O.C. Welch Ford Lincoln customers can expect to see a peak power output of around 450 horsepower from the vehicle’s new powertrain. Turbocharging technology allows the 2018 Lincoln Navigator to have nearly class-leading performance scores without compromising fuel economy potential. Additionally, overall efficiency is aided by Lincoln’s use of high-strength aluminum alloy in the vehicle’s body.
New technology options for 2018 Navigator
Without question, the release date for the 2018 Lincoln Navigator will mark the arrival of the most technologically advanced vehicle the automaker has produced. Each of the SUV’s available trims will come with the SYNC 3 infotainment system as standard equipment. The system will be controlled by a 12-inch touchscreen on top of the vehicle’s center stack. From a single interface, owners will be able to manage audio, phone calls, navigation and integrate smartphone applications from Android and Apple mobile devices.
